I only heard of Argentina 1985 due to its Best International Film nomination in this years Oscars. The whole reason I watched. And I’m very glad I did because it was excellent and well worth a watch.
The Banshees of Inisherin is a great totally character driven film. It takes you on a ride with these characters and I was with it from beginning to end. On the other hand by the end of the movie I knew if I ever hear the word “fecking” again I may just lose it!
Darkseid is… in love… Harley Quinn dropped a trailer for her surprise (at least too me) Valentine’s Day special and finally a Valentine’s Day event I can get behind!
Much like reading I’ve made it a goal to watch more international films. In 2022 I did a darned good job considering in the past I’ve usually only watched one or two subtitled films a year. Last year I did 11. Well 11 1/2 but I didn’t finish one so I’m not counting it and … More Films from Around the World (2022 List)
I actually really enjoyed Troll- it’s every disaster movie trope crammed into one movie. Which also happens to be a dark fairy tale. I mean sure there are parts that I cringed a bit. Parts that I actually teared up but still a totally fun watch. Pretty much any time someone tells me there’s a … More Troll: When Disaster Movie meets Fairy Tale
Excuse the title. I couldn’t think of anything less generic 🙂 But one of my goals last year (and moving forward) was to read more translated books- or just more books from other countries. Same with films but that’s another post. My goal is to hit every country in the world. Kind of like literary … More Reading Books from Around the World
Happy New Year Everyone! I thought it would be a fun time to look ahead to some of the movies and shows that are in store for this year 🙂 Something to put on the calendar and look forward to in the rest of the long days of winter. 2023 is the year of…
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is a weird one for me. I liked the mystery better than the first movie (wild though it gets) but that being said… Character wise I think I preferred the first movie. And honestly I think this one is overhyped too. Like people are calling this an Oscar contender … More Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery
Well they certainly didn’t half-ass the sex scenes. I caught the new version of Lady Chatterley’s Lover on Netflix cause I’ve bypassed Christmas movies I guess and jumped right into period dramas. However definitely not a mistake as it’s the best version I’ve seen.
As someone who is not the biggest fan of Del Toro and does not like the Pinocchio story (probably the genesis for all killer doll stories) color me surprised by how much I enjoyed and appreciated this one! And boy does it blow the recent Disney adaptation out of the water.
